Our outdoor environment is teaming with bacteria and microorganisms that can be both beneficial as well as harmful for your horse. Which is why keeping your horse’s diet and supplements in check is so important, helping them to maintain or regain their health as needed.
Aside from bacteria, stress can really be a concerning factor for your horse – whether that stress includes long trips or frequent short trips, changes to their environment, allergies, reactions to insect bites. among others.
However, you can help promote and boost your horse’s immune system with Basic Equine Nutrition, offering a variety of Immune Function Supplements to help. Although minimizing stress can help a lot, adding in supplements can also assist when the life of your horse simply requires frequent movement and unpreventable stressors.
Some of our supplements that can help to combat stress and promote health for your horse include vitamins such as:
A, D & E PLUS ZINC
Vitamin A is important for proper function of the eyes and muscles and helps keep mucous membranes healthy – the linings of the respiratory, digestion and reproductive tracts.
